catherines story #spartacusreport #spartacusstories


Has enabled me to be a proper mother to two children, both with physical or mental disabilities who have gone on to University and are now wage earners in their own right. Now I need my DLA just to keep alive and the house clean. My condition has got so bad that I can no longer walk due to breathlessness nor care for myself. Before all the 'disability bashing' started I regarded myself as an equal to people I mixed with. No I have no self esteem and am receiving psychiatric
treatment as well as a panoply of drugs and regular checks. My condition will eventually kill me. And I shall die feeling less than human, a creature, a burden, a sponger, not the pretty disabled young woman I used to be.
